Lotus’s to phase out single-use plastic bags in July

In conjunction with the World Environment Day celebration which had taken place on 5 June, we will no longer offer single-use plastic bags at our checkout counters.

This initiative is also in support of the government’s Roadmap to Zero Single-Use Plastics 2018-2030, which envisions a cleaner and environmentally sustainable Malaysia by 2030. With the message, ‘Bring Home Change’ or ‘Bawa Pulang Perubahan’, we are underlining that an act as simple as bringing one’s reusable bag to shop can bring about a bigger, more sustainable positive impact to the environment and country.

The implementation will be done in stages, with Lotus’s Penang E-Gate taking the lead on 15 June, then Lotus’s Desa Tebrau (Johor) on 17 June, and to the remaining 60 Lotus’s stores nationwide starting 1 July!
